Not bad for a Taurus
By MOS on


1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Wagon


Bought this wagon in 2001 with 85000
miles. I have since put on 46000
miles. Once had to have work done on
the transmission with two solenoid
valves replaced on the valve body. All
tranny shops wanted to rebuild the
whole thing for 1500/- and above. The
local ford dealer did a good diagnosis
and prescribed the right parts. I then
went to a trans shop and gave them the
diagnosis to fix for half the labor
estimate of the dealer. In all about
400/- to fix. 300/- in parts.

Best Features

Roomy! used in three moves. Not bad for power and MPG. Nice V6 3.0. Great ride compared to a standard japanese. (excl. Lexus). Great roof rack. I like the bubble shape. GRreat with kids!

Worst Features

Clearance too low. FORD you have to become more reliable! This is coming from an Automotive Engineer. This would be really the best in the US class if it became more reliable!
